'Warframe' Rolls Out Update 9, Adds New Weapons, WarFrame, Map Updates, Tweaks & Fixes

by Rainier on July 13, 2013 @ 11:59 a.m. PDT

Join the fight in this new free-to-play, co-op focused shooter.

Set in the far reaches of outer space during a new Dark Age, WarFrame introduces the Tenno, a race on the brink of extinction after being enslaved by the Grineer for centuries. Players enter WarFrame on the cusp of the Grineer's victory over the Tenno until they begin to arm themselves with WarFrameS - an ancient exo-skeletal technology only they can operate. Hidden within the Orokin Derelicts of a lost civilization, new WarFrameS lie dormant and undiscovered. These artifacts are the Tenno's only hope for survival.

WarFrame is a fast-action PvE shooter set in an evolving sci-fi world. Some would call it MMO-Lite as squads of four players band together to advance their characters and battle the oppression of the genocidal Grineer. Throughout their combat missions, players will continually increase the power and abilities of their WarFrame and weapons. Players will raid new areas of space searching for exotic and powerful weapons and WarFrame augmentations to customize their arsenal. With WarFrame's Automatic Mission Generator, the game will offer endless replay as levels are procedurally configured for a unique raid -- every time.

Update 9 is here, Tenno, and Warframe has now amassed a ninja-following of 3 million—1 million more since Update 8!

Let’s celebrate with new content, features, and more…

  • NOVA WARFRAME: After many rounds of brainstorming discussions and voting with our Design Council—the antimatter-themed Warframe is NOW available! As unpredictable as antimatter itself, NOVA puts an interesting twist into any battle and brings an innovated set of powers to the table.
  • MAP EXPANSIONS: The OROKIN VOID and GRINEER GALLEON have new mission styles added! Get ready to play Defense and Capture within the Void, and Mobile Defense, Spy, Deception, and Capture in Grineer Galleon.
